A Finnish member of parliament has come under fire for a comment he made over the weekend decrying the "nightmare called multiculturalism" and rallying his compatriots to fight for "one true Finnish nation."
The MP, Olli Immonen, is a member of the populist and nationalist Finns Party, which is part of the country's governing coalition. In a posting on his Facebook page late Friday night, Immonen said he is "dreaming of a strong, brave nation that will defeat this nightmare called multiculturalism. This ugly bubble that our enemies live in, will soon enough burst into a million little pieces."
"Our lives are entwined in a very harsh times [sic]," Immonen said. "These are the days, that will forever leave a mark on our nations [sic] future. I have strong belief in my fellow fighters. We will fight until the end for our homeland and one true Finnish nation. The victory will be ours."
